The Minnesota Court of Appeals has ruled that a man convicted of murder should have a new trial.

A jury in Duluth found Paul David Welle, whom's address is listed as Elk River by court documents,  guilty of homicide in the 2011 death of Dale Anderson, of Blaine.

Anderson died after he and Welle got into a fight outside of the Powerhouse Bar and Grill in Proctor.

The Appellate Court says evidence of Welle’s past assault cases was incorrectly used at trial, ruling it was unfairly prejudicial to him.

The Minnesota Attorney General’s Office handled the appeal and will decide whether to ask the state’s Supreme Court to review the case.
